Update on Northpark Shooting

Ridgeland Police Chief Bryan Myers issued the following statement. 

Za’Lill D’Chelle Patterson, age 16, of Jackson, has been charged as an adult with Aggravated Assault with a Weapon in reference to the shooting incident at Northpark Mall on Saturday, 9/17, which occurred at approximately 5:20PM.  Patterson is being held at the Madison County Detention Center, no bond has been set as of yet.  Patterson was injured in this incident and was transported by ambulance for medical attention before being booked and processed on her charges. 

 

The other party in this incident has been interviewed and has fully cooperated with the investigation; this incident will be presented to the Madison County Grand Jury.

 

We are so fortunate that no one else was injured in this incident.

 

Special thanks to the City of Madison Police Department and the Madison County Sheriff’s Department for their prompt response to assist the Ridgeland Police Department with this incident as it was occurring.  The integrity and commitment of law enforcement to rush into a scene as everyone else is running out should be a glaring example of the love and care we hold for this community and our citizens. 


Kingfish note: She is charged with aggravated assault.  If the charges are dropped or dismissed, this post will be removed.

Yet another reminder to always be armed.

And never relax. Even around 5'3" tall, 120 lb teenaged girls. Always be ready to use deadly force to defend yourself. These are ferals.

Reckon the police report can't accommodate commas in names.

She is hard looking at 16-years. This isn't her first rodeo misbehaving. Why no armed robbery charge?

I’m an American Citizen of Irish, Scots, English and Saxon decent. I absolutely cannot pronounce the names that are coming out of that culture and I thought my Celtic ancestors had a strange language. Go figure. Sliante y’all

Lawyer question:

What's the difference between Aggravated assault and Aggravated assault with a deadly weapon?

"If the charges are dropped or dismissed, this post will be removed"

Why change the facts? Why not just add an addendum stating the charges were dropped, and what the rationale was for dropping the charge(s). The fact is she apparently pulled a gun and threatened someone with it.

Attn 12:07 About 5 years.

The accused needs to receive consequences for the crime regardless of her age. I hope a couple of questions are answered:
1) Why she decided to rob a popcorn store? Did she have knowledge of something more valuable than popcorn being sold?
2) Why bring a gun to rob an unguarded popcorn store? It’s not like it was a jewelry store.

With all of these popcorn fundraisers, one wouldn’t think that volume of popcorn was being sold in a store front. Maybe she will answer some of those questions, which might be beneficial for the owner to know.

We all know that a thief is a thief but shoplifting with a weapon seems a bit much.

@ "Lawyer question:

What's the difference between Aggravated assault and Aggravated assault with a deadly weapon?

I am not a lawyer but I can read. Mississippi Code § 97-3-7 (2) states:

(a) A person is guilty of aggravated assault if he or she (i) attempts to cause serious bodily injury to another, or causes such injury purposely, knowingly or recklessly under circumstances manifesting extreme indifference to the value of human life; (ii) attempts to cause or purposely or knowingly causes bodily injury to another with a deadly weapon or other means likely to produce death or serious bodily harm; or (iii) causes any injury to a child who is in the process of boarding or exiting a school bus in the course of a violation of Section 63-3-615; and, upon conviction, he or she shall be punished by imprisonment in the county jail for not more than one (1) year or sentenced to the custody of the Department of Corrections for not more than twenty (20) years.

I found no code section for "aggravated assault with a deadly weapon," probably because there is no such redundant crime.

There is a five-year additional penalty for using a firearm in a felony (10 years if you're already a convicted felon). Miss Code § 97-37-37. It's supposed to be a minimum penalty that can't be suspended, but, naturally, the courts habitually ignore it.

I saw online that allegedly Patterson's mother was with her when this occurred. If so, that is really pathetic.

One wonders why the mall owners would spend upwards of $50 million on a dying commercial business model.

Desperation. What are they going to do with the husk of an abandoned, dead mall?

12:30, Probably because she's a child under 18. I think the only reason her name was published is because she's charged as an adult. If that charge goes away, so should her published name.

KF is pretty good about following up on stuff to amend, correct, etc., after the initial fanfare has subsided. I call that character.

The owners renovated the mall for the tax benefit! Ridgeland lobbied well and the mall is apart of an Opportunity Zone. The renovation was merely a large company using the mall to defer capital gains. Not what you make but what you keep.

Malls are only dying in America. They are flourishing in places that do not suffer the same cultural issues that exist in the USA.

Why would you hold up a store for popcorn when every day we see it available right here on Jambalaya for free?

Gettin' me some now so I can enjoy the rest of the posts.

I agree with 8:55. The mall concept is still a good concept and it works. The problem is the behavior that these malls attracts. If folks could act right, the malls would still be flourishing.

Heck, MetroCenter would still be open and thriving if the area was still nice, restaurants were open, crime rate was almost zero. MetroCenter certainly didn't die because the mall concept was bad or outdated. MetroCenter died because of potholes, surrounding infrastructure, crime in the area, abandonded buildings in the area, dangerous demographic in the mall, etc. It became a place where women and families no longer felt comfortable shopping. The concept was still good while the atmosphere was not.

@ 1:51 I found no code section for "aggravated assault with a deadly weapon," probably because there is no such redundant crime.

Subsection: "(ii) attempts to cause or purposely or knowingly causes bodily injury to another with a deadly weapon or other means likely to produce death or serious bodily harm". Guns, knives etc

Agg Assault by Choking, as we see in some Domestic Violence cases is without a weapon. Poisons, chemicals, cars, chairs, and other blunt type objects are normally not weapons unless used with intent as such.

Once the Juvenile system let her go to adult status, even if the charge is dismissed or reduced, she will remain recognized as an adult, unless expungement occurs.

Go easy. Seriously, who here hasn't had a popcorn craving? amirite?

The Europa Center in Berlin was built in the 1960's, and it is still a robust shopping venue today. Difference? Safe and popular location, and continuously updating to remain current.

There are plenty of urban areas around the country that have malls, that have been functioning for well over 40 years. The biggest issue with the Jackson Metro Area is that there's cutthroat competition to pull businesses from one area and move them to another. We are just spinning our wheels with the current trajectory of development.

It doesn't have to be this hard, but here we are. Wash, rinse, repeat.

Thanks Jackson.
Your parasites have drained you as a host so now Madison County will have to save you from your moron faux-justice system.
Be sure to send Mayor Gene and Mary a Thank You card for prosecuting your garbage.
Speaking of garbage, how's that contract debacle going?

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).


Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.


In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.

Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug. Trollfest will have a dunking booth where Muhammed the terrorist will curse you to Allah as you try to hit a target that will drop him into a vat of pig grease. However, in the true spirit of Separate But Equal, Don Imus and someone from NE Jackson will also sit in the dunking booth for an equal amount of time. Tom Head will give a reading for two hours on why he can't figure out who the hell he is. Cliff Cargill will give lessons with his .80 caliber desert eagle, using Frank Melton photos as targets.
